and my expectations were high. I discovered Awestruck on Facebook when David Bates, owner, posted a breathtaking photo on an Estes Park page. Ever since, I'd followed Awestruck and wanted to stay there. It took us a few years to finally stay. Awestruck's website does an excellent job of showing the home with pictures and lists of amenities, etc. So I knew it was going to be amazing. It was even better than amazing. Every single detail is what you'd want in your own home. The kind of extras the David & Beth put into this home, are not in any other rental homes -- even the nice ones. Because, who wants renters destroying their things? Well, when you rent at Awestruck, you treat everything with care, because it feels like you are home. I think David & Beth are smart enough to have had that foresight. Everything from top of the line furnishings, appliances, Xbox, huge DVD collection way better than Netflix (Introduced my kids to Karate Kid - haha). We spent more time in the house than we have in any house in Estes Park. We normally are out much more. We could have done NOTHING but enjoy this home. We will be back in July. Thank you, David and Beth for sharing your home!

With your first time making memories in Awestruck being in May and knowing you would be returning only a few months later, we felt some real pressure to add some additional special touches before you return. Having just added two incredibly comfortable rocking chairs, new window treatments and some additional photography, we hope we can again exceed your expectations. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a great review.

Our visit to Awestruck was outstanding. It was immediately obvious that the cabin was not built as a rental property but rather as a first-rate residence. Everything was top-notch, right down to the appliances. Furnishings are ample, plush and with a mountain motif. The walls are decorated with unbelievable wildlife photography. The cabin is spacious with unparalleled views. Every convenience has been considered and supplied. We will definitely go back.

WOW! Hands down the best vacation home we have ever rented and will ever rent. Awestruck has every amenity you can think of (Shampoo, Soap, Xbox, Paperclips, Aspirin band aids, etc). This home is beautiful, clean, comfortable and you never want leave. The views are like out of a Movie. The Wildlife that came around the property was as if It was cued in everyday. My wife and I woke up to Deer walking by our bedroom window. The Staff at Windcliff were great and made checking in a breeze. The Owner David called when we arrived to make sure everything was great. Awestruck is a perfect home for families or couples looking to get away and stay in a perfect Colorado dream home. We will never forget this vacation home and hope to make it back again. Thank you for sharing your dream home with us.

The reviews are accurate, this place is amazing. One of the best rentals we have ever experienced. The views are incredible, the home is outfitted with everything you could need, and the furnishings are comfortable. Wildlife abounds in this convenient location. Stay here and you will not be disappointed.

We have stayed in many 5 star vacation homes across the United States and must say that Awestruck topped the chart ! It had beautiful mountain views, amazing wildlife photography throughout the house, a well-stocked kitchen, state of the art jacuzzi , extra large hot tub, washing machine with detergent, fireplace with ample firewood, a welcome call when we arrived along with unique mountain decor in each room.
On our last day at Awestruck, it snowed ! Several deer stepped in the driveway, and we found ourselves in a true winter wonderland.
The drive up the mountain to the home in October may require an all wheel drive. We were glad to have the extra help as it is a steep climb. The view is totally worth the effort!

This home truly lived up to the beautiful pictures and great reviews. The location was perfect for those who want to be out of the crowds of people in downtown Estes Park. It was close to town, close to Rocky Mountain National Park, and had absolutely breathtaking views. There was a grocery store nearby, which came in handy as we chose to stay in and cook every evening while watching the sun set. This was one of the most well appointed homes we have stayed in. It was like being in your own house. Everything you could possibly need is there for you in the house. The wi-fi worked great, which was a huge plus as my husband had to do some work and we have two teenagers! The hot tub was immaculate and had a beautiful view as well. The kitchen was well stocked, which came in handy cooking every night. We saw plenty of deer, rabbits and hummingbirds from the back deck. The owners have furnished this house beautifully and with high quality items. They obviously love the area and want your stay to be perfect. My teenage daughter summed it up best when she said "We don't ever have to leave - this house is vacation enough!"

My husband and I returned to Awestruck this year for our first wedding anniversary and just didn't want to leave. David and Beth definitely know the right recipe for treating those bogged down by life, from immaculate hot tubs to Jacuzzi baths, life's stresses were quickly sloughed off and we were able to enjoy the trip to the fullest. A warm welcoming gift and just having the house ready for us just made the experience so much more. We will definitely be returning next year!
